Well, it didn’t take very long. My first bug is as such, changing the desktop picture on one desktop does not change it for all of the desktops. (In Mission Control) However, change desktops and then try to change the desktop picture again and in the System Preferences it will show you that you already changed the picture. You must change it to something else and then back again.
I needed a quick way to check the type of connection I had running. After a quick Google, I found that the MacOS has the utility, it just needs to be tweaked a little.
Open terminal and create a link to the utility.
sudo ln -s /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport /usr/sbin/airport
Now that the utility is available, run airport -I for all of your wireless information.
Seems like pppd is no longer setuid anymore. To correct this, fire up terminal and enter the following:
sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/pppd
This will enable NetExtender to once again work its magic.
Looks like Snow Leopard does not boot into a 64bit kernel by default. There are a couple of ways to get some 64bit goodness.
An update is available now only through Apple Software Update. As of right now, download was not found on the apple.com website.
Pressing Apple-Esc will launch Front Row. Pretty slick!
I have two drives on my Mac and I wanted to hide the Time Machine drive. I have no need to access this drive and I wanted a cleaner desktop. I found some information online that lead me to a good method to perform the task.
I have come acros a rather annoying bug in 10.5. It seems that when a disk image (DMG) is mounted, the finder is unable to eject (dismount) the image. I have tried both Apple+E as well as dragging the disk to the trash. Both methods were unsuccessful. The disks can be ejected using the Disk Utility application. See the following URL’s for an ongoing discussion.
